Prepaid connections banned in Jammu & Kashmir

The Centre has announced a ban on the use of pre paid SIM cards in J&K, quoting security reasons.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has announced a ban on the use of prepaid SIM cards in Jammu & Kashmir quoting security reasons. It has decided that no prepaid mobile connections should be issued and existing pre paid SIM cards should not be renewed after November 1.
In an official statement, the Ministry of Home Affairs states, “The step comes in the wake of the reports that proper verification is not being done while providing such pre-paid mobile connections by the service providers/vendors. In some cases, a single person had been issued with multiple number of connections.” Some connections are being acquired based on fake documents.
The Ministry has asked the Department of Telecommunications to implement the ban as soon as possible.
Earlier this month, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram had spoken on the same issue while addressing the media in Srinagar.
